Laborer - IMPLEMENTED

Post by COOLguy » Sat Oct 25, 2014 6:15 pm

**New Unit**

Has mend like worker but it can't create a new structure except for walls and watchtowers and bridges.

Stats:
-Move 3
-Mend Range 1
- Mend power 7
**Attack** 4
No Armor
-Cost 2
**Build list limited to above**

I have the image too.

So instead of building a bunch of workers (five is my standard), just have a couple of them and a few more of these cheaper guys. They're not as effective, but the workers can start projects (ie Castle) and laborers provide cheaper grunt labor.

COOL!

I like the image!
Will it have less building speed than worker? (I dunno what your stats mean!)
I think it should have about 4/5 the build rate of a worker.
Or cost 1 turn and have 2/5 the build rate.

Yes, it has approx. 4/5 (I think 7/9 in actuality but I'd have to look again) build speed. :)

Maybe we could have a variant with 1 build turn and less build. But we don't want an OP unit.

Would you use him in a game, Ollie?
Thanks!

Yeah, I see where you are coming from with this idea, and I'd use it in the same way.

IDEA 1
You could also reduce health so they die after 1 arrow, if you kept a cost of 2. This way, you could then further reduce build/mend speed, and still keep the unit useful.

IDEA 2
Also they could be easily converted.

Ok, sounds good. Then the weaker 1 turn guy needs a name.
Thanks!

tbh, I think one variation of the worker is enough.
I prefer the 2-turn one.

Ok, we'll do "Laborer" (the two turn guy).

Thank you, ejm29. :)

Here is the final updated image, and I'll try to attach a txt file with the stats and whatnot.

So if you ever want to put him in, Daniel, I think he is ready. :)

I like the idea of cheap grunt units for building.
Anything is feasible with enough money and power.

Get ready to get your teeth kicked in, it will make for a good education.

I've noticed laborers cant build anything and this observation make me believe they should have the ability to create rock piles to block roadways, make roads for faster travel, and other grunt works.
Also I believe laborers should possible have speciality in removing obstructive units such as rock piles.

I feel the labourer is weak at present. It should have the same mend rate as the worker. Not able to start a building is a curse enough for the labourer to cost 2 turns
